In this seminar, Dr. Lopez details how to program Maple's Embedded Components. All the lore and wisdom he has accumulated by trial-and-error, practice, and badgering of the Maplesoft programmers will be revealed during the presentation.

Embedded Components are those buttons and boxes that can be assembled to create math apps. They are inserted into a document by clicking in the Components palette. They can be coded interactively "within" the component, or programmatically, from "without" the component.

In this webinar, Dr. Lopez will apply the techniques of “Clickable Calculus” to standard calculations in vector calculus. These calculations include Gaussian elimination, projecting a vector onto a one- or two-dimensional subspace, and exploring the relationships between eigenvalues, singular values, and the matrix norm.

Clickable Calculus™, the idea of powerful mathematics delivered using very visual, interactive point-and-click methods, offers educators a new generation of teaching and learning techniques. Clickable Calculus introduces a better way of engaging students so that they fully understand the materials they are being taught. It responds to the most common complaint of faculty who integrate software into the classroom – time is spent teaching the tool, not the concepts.

Dr. Robert J. Lopez, Emeritus Professor of Mathematics at the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Indiana, USA, is an award winning educator in mathematics and is the author of several books, including Advanced Engineering Mathematics. For over two decades, Dr. Lopez has also been a visionary figure in the introduction of math technology into undergraduate education and has received numerous awards for outstanding scholarship and teaching.

The automotive industry is in transformation. New generation vehicles deploying hybrid (HEV), fully electric (EV), and fuel cell powerplants are presenting significant challenges to automotive engineers. The complexity of the automobile has increased exponentially in the past decades with higher performance components and digital control. This has triggered a design revolution in the industry which stresses detailed modeling and simulation steps prior to committing to metal and plastic. With new generation vehicles the need for advanced physical modeling solutions is considerably greater due to increasing system complexity, and the battery is becoming one of the most critical components in alternative powerplant development.

This webinar covers new approaches to modeling and simulation for hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) and fully electric vehicle (EV) applications with particular emphasis on the development of high fidelity physical models of automotive batteries. Developed as part of the research program for the NSERC/Toyota/Maplesoft Industrial Research Chair for Mathematics-based Modeling and Design, these models will plug into comprehensive system models for HEV and EV applications. Conventional lead-acid, but also NiMH and Lithium battery models will be presented.

In this 60 minute webinar, a Maplesoft expert will show you how to begin using your evaluation copy of MapleSim 2015, the physical modeling and simulation tool built on a foundation of symbolic computation technology.

Learn how to efficiently handle the complex mathematics involved in the development of engineering models, including multi-domain systems, plant modeling, and control design with MapleSim 2015. We will demonstrate how to create high-fidelity, high-performance models and reduce development time from months to days.
